Nail Surgery for Ingrowing Toenails
One toe both sides £200
Two toes both sides £300
The procedure is carried out under local anaesthetic. Once the toe is numb, a tourniquet is applied to the toe to ensure restricted blood flow to the area just for the duration of the surgery. This means it is a very clean procedure with very little blood. The nail is then loosened at the appropriate sides and then cut down the length of the nail. The sides of the ingrowing toenails are then removed. Effort is made to retain as much of the nail as possible to achieve a good cosmetic result on healing. A chemical called phenol is then applied to the sides of the nail that have been removed. It is this chemical that kills the nail bed and stops the same bit of nail re-growing. Once the chemical has been applied for the appropriate length of time, the tourniquet is removed and normal blood flow is restored to the area, which is then dressed. You will be given lots of advice pre–surgically to enable optimum healing post-surgery.
The procedure does not last long and patients are advised to bring a book or MP3 player to distract them throughout if necessary. The patient always lies flat during surgery so will not see the surgery being carried out.
Patients are not discharged until the site has completely healed. All post surgical dressing appointments are included in the cost and the clinic will supply all dressings to the patient throughout.
